Section II. DESCRIPTION AND DATA
General. The generator set, military model MEP-
029A and MEP-029B (figures 1-1, 1-2, 1-3, and 1-
4), is a skid-mounted, self- contained unit. The
generator is provided with controls, instruments
and accessories necessary for operation as a
single unit, or in parallel, with up to three
additional units of the same class and mode.
Housing kit (military model MEP-029 AHK) is
available for field installation. The housing kit
encloses the top, sides, and ends of the set and is
removable to provide access for overhaul or
replacement of the major components. The
housing kit is attached to a skid base by bolted
construction to provide a rain proof enclosure.
When the doors, covers, and louvers are closed,
rain, snow, and sand are excluded from the
interior of the housing. An automatic control
module (ACM), remote control module (RCM),
and remote control cable are also available for
use with the generator set. The automatic control
module provides for parallel operation of up to
four generator sets. The automatic control
module senses and initiates the unattended
sequence when the normal 120V AC supply
voltage varies more than plus or minus 10
percent and/or the frequency varies more than
3.0 percent. The remote control module permits
remote start, stop, monitor, and control of the
generator set from a location up to 100 feet (30
meters) via the remote control cable.
